View: 4345Calculus with Analytic Geometry presents the essentials of calculus with analytic geometry. The emphasis is on how to set up and solve calculus problems, that is, how to apply calculus. The initial approach to each topic is intuitive, numerical, and motivated by examples, with theory kept to a bare minimum. Later, after much experience in the use of the topic, an appropriate amount of theory is presented. Comprised of 18 chapters, this book begins with a review of some basic pre-calculus algebra and analytic geometry, paying particular attention to functions and graphs. The reader is then introduced to derivatives and applications of differentiation; exponential and trigonometric functions; and techniques and applications of integration. Subsequent chapters deal with inverse functions, plane analytic geometry, and approximation as well as convergence, and power series. In addition, the book considers space geometry and vectors; vector functions and curves; higher partials and applications; and double and multiple integrals. This monograph will be a useful resource for undergraduate students of mathematics and algebra.

View: 2773This is the most widely used calculus text in the United States. It has a reputation for having the clearest explanations of the subject matter, permitting more classroom time to be spent in problem solving, applications, or explanations of the most difficult points. The opening chapter contains review material on algebra and the closing chapters cover Stoke's theorem and second-order differential equations. Contains many examples and exercises.

View: 8696This Fourth Edition has been revised to reflect the tremendous changes taking place in the way calculus is taught. Now includes coverage of the same topics that are in the Brief Edition plus additional discussions of three-dimensional space and vectors, vector-valued functions, partial derivatives, multiple integrals and vector calculus. Continues the fine tradition of earlier volumes with attention to detail, well-written explanations and a lively, accessible approach to learning.

With Analytic Geometry and Linear Algebra
Author: A. Wayne Roberts
Publisher: Academic Press
View: 2805Introductory Calculus: Second Edition, with Analytic Geometry and Linear Algebra is an introductory text on calculus and includes topics related to analytic geometry and linear algebra. Functions and graphs are discussed, along with derivatives and antiderivatives, curves in the plane, infinite series, and differential equations. Comprised of 15 chapters, this book begins by considering vectors in the plane, the straight line, and conic sections. The next chapter presents some of the basic facts about functions, the formal definition of a function, and the notion of a graph of a function. Subsequent chapters examine the derivative as a linear transformation; higher derivatives and the mean value theorem; applications of graphs; and the definite integral. Transcendental functions and how to find an antiderivative are also discussed, together with the use of parametric equations to determine the curve in a plane; how to solve linear equations; functions of several variables and the derivative and integration of these functions; and problems that lead to differential equations. This monograph is intended for students taking a two- or three-semester course in introductory calculus.
